Reader Question Answered: Upcycling a Daily Calendar

decoupaged picture frame from Dill Pickle DesignTo show off just one or two special calendar graphics (or quotes from “The Office”), choose to decoupage an object that allows such a featured presentation.

This decoupaged picture frame from from Dill Pickle Design, for instance, has space at the top for just one quote representing the undying love between Jim and Pam, with a photo in the frame of you and your love, of course, or a quote from Dwight, perhaps, with a photo of your oddest friend.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.

  1. Coaster was definitely my first tought, but having 365 tiles stashed in your drawer my not be very efficient.
    Maybe cover the day of the week part with “dry erase” tape (is there such a thing?) and use the pages as a perpetual calendar.
